Children of Beslan

On 1 September 2004, Chechen separatist terrorists seized a school in the remote North Ossetian town of Beslan. Three days later, a gun battle between the hostage-takers and Russian security forces ended in the brutal massacre of over 300 people, many of them children. In this moving documentary, young survivors, many of whom lost friends and relatives in appalling circumstances, recall the siege and the desperate weeks that followed, sharing their thoughts on politics, religion and the "war on terror".

Children's Television: Sea and Ships - The North-West Passage

Peter Scott discusses a film of H.M.C.S. Labrador with Commander J. M. Leeming, R.C.N.
The story of the North-West Passage is the story of the many daring attempts to find a free deep-water channel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans round the North of Canada.
From the seventeenth century onwards many attempts were made. Two of the most famous of these expeditions were those of Parry in 1819 and later, in 1845, of Franklin, who died making the attempt. After Amundsen's successful voyage in 1903 the first passage from West to East was made in 1940 by Henry Larsen in St. Roch-a Royal Canadian Mounted Police boat. The first naval vessel to go through was H.M.C.S. Labrador in 1954. In this afternoon's programme Peter Scott and Commander Leeming talk about some of the historic attempts and discuss films of St. Roch and Labrador.

Words and music by HENRY REED followed by a short programme of MUSIC, SONG, AND STORY in which you will hear THE THREE SEMIS, and THE CHILDREN'S HOUR ORCHESTRA will play some of the music specially written for them (Northern Programme)

The little musical play, Fox Fable, is founded on several of Æsop's fables about the fox-those chronicling his adventures with the grapes, the goat, the stork, and the crow. You will also hear something about the fox without a tail and Æsop's frogs. There will be solos by the fox, the goat, the crow, and the stork, and the little frogs will sing the choruses throughout.
The frogs, Tim, Tom, and Turn will be broadcast by The Three Semis — Violet Carson, Doris Gamble, and Muriel Levy - who are old favourites with listeners to the Children's Hour in the North.
Henry Reed is a well-known radio composer who wrote the music to The Flying Classroom and The Black Duke and the White Duke.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
